Celebration, FL US
November 17, 2019 to November 18, 2019

NEW for 2019: Simultaneous Live Surgeries and Interactive Case Discussion

DON'T DELAY AND REGISTER TODAY! (2018 course sold out within 6 weeks)

Advanced Single and Multi-Port Robotic Urologic Oncology Masterclass provides a structured approach to advanced single and multi-port robotic surgery for conditions of the prostate, kidney, and bladder with an emphasis on radical prostatectomy and partial nephrectomy. This course will also focus on emerging technologies including genomic testing and advanced imaging. World-class faculty, with more than a decade of experience with complex robotic surgery, will provide you with instruction to refine your technique and achieve superior results.

The first day will focus on prostate surgery. Specific surgical techniques will be presented in a step-by-step operative outline. Content will cover issues such as optimizing outcomes of robotic radical prostatectomy, discussing complications, and tips and tricks of challenging cases. High Definition, live transmission of robotic radical prostatectomy by Dr. Vipul Patel will include recent modifications in technique. The second day will be devoted to kidney and bladder surgery. The course will include multiple live surgeries demonstrating tips and tricks, management of anatomic anomalies and challenging situations, with expert faculty to provide commentary and discussion. Audience participation will be encouraged to ensure one on one interaction. Panel discussions with master faculty will examine methods to recognize and address complications and problems for each of the surgical procedures.
